Common Name: Persian Ironwood/ParrotiaEssentially the tree form of witchhazel. It naturally becomes a low-branched tree, typically two-thirds as broad as it is tall. Bark exfoliates on older branches; leaves turn brilliant red, yellow and orange in autumn. With a bit of selective pruning when it's young, but minimal care thereafter, it becomes a medium-sized tree of appealing form. Maroon spring flowers are small, easily missed but attractive, rewarding the curious.
